Amgen shares led the S&P 500's decline, dropping 3.3 percent to $162.38 after U.S. regulators said Amgen's skin cancer immunotherapy cannot be considered for an accelerated review at this time. Biotechs in particular have driven up the Nasdaq, which last week reached its first all-time closing high in 15 years.

Teva, the world's biggest maker of generic drugs, quickly responded to Mylan's refusal with word that it was "fully committed" and would move forward with the $82 per share cash and stock offer. Teva said it had begun the regulatory approval process and that it expects to complete a deal by the end of 2015. The company will meet with Mylan shareholders this week, according to sources familiar with the situation.
